Kono: A New Strategy Game

My partner, Kevin, is a software developer with a prestigious background. As a hobby, he has developed two iOS apps, one of which is soon to be released, and he is looking for beta testers.

The Classic 4x4 Board

The Classic 4×4 Kono Board

Kono is a strategy game with two basic rules. First, a piece can be moved one space horizontally or vertically onto an empty node. Second, a piece can be jumped over its own color onto an opponent piece to score a capture. To win the game, reduce the opponent to one piece or pin the opponent’s pieces.

Currently, Kono is a one player game versus a computer AI. There are five board layouts to choose from, and a simple tutorial lets you practice the basic moves right from the start.

The game is in beta now, and Kevin is seeking testers who are willing to play the game and offer timely feedback on any issues they uncover. Because it is an iOS app, he will need the email associated with your Apple ID in order to invite you to the beta itself; it comes through Apple’s TestFlight app.

If you are interested, or want to learn more, please contact Kevin at support@huntingtonphoenix.com

On the flip side, if you want to check out his other app, New Color, it’s available for free in the Apple App Store. It’s an easy way to recolor photos on your iPhone or iPad. You can also learn more about New Color at HuntingtonPhoenix.com
